I guess that this doesn't have to be an @debian.org address.  I've been 
considering removing my @debian.org address, the only things that go to it 
are debian-private (which I can hopefully get directed to another address) 
and spam.

That's an amusing way to look at it.  Make everyone who receives mail through 
Debian servers (both list servers and their personal @debian.org address) do 
extra work because you don't want to remove yourself from the CBL (which you 
can only get listed on if you send mail to a spam-trap address).
